    matt bullard said he struggled with the same issues as a 6'10" guy with a long torso. iirc back problems ended his career, albeit many years later. The pounding dmo takes in the post probably makes it even worse as compared to a guy like bullard who played predominantly on the perimeter.

    This is exactly why Capela should have been playing with the team all season.
    Oh well.

    Certainly hurts our depth, and it sucks man can't catch a break. BUT we still have TJones and JSmith expect them to carry the load w/ Dorsey getting very few minutes.

    Yeah, but how can they rule him out for the season just because he's not ready to come back? The playoffs aren't for 10-11 days. And if the Rockets advance to the second round, that won't begin for 3 1/2 weeks. Is his injury that serious that they can tell right now he won't be ready even in a month? If so, someone needs to get fired on the medical staff. Talk about misdiagnosing the guy.

    I'm sorry something just doesn't seem right about this whole thing. Too all of a sudden.
